This isn’t more healthy eating advice. It’s about your body’s signs and symptoms to help you to lead a healthier, enrich your life, and live longer.

This website introduces you to the idea that there are many hundreds of ‘Body Language’ signals telling you about the state of your health, and what you need to look after your body. 

Please note. Body Language is a collection of 'classic' signs and symptoms that the authors have painstakingly collected, researched and expanded. Most of them are grounded on valid science, a few are 'old wives tales' that nevertheless have sound scientific validity, a few are anecdotal. Many of them are fascinating in their own right. 

These Body Language signs are valuable as 'early warning signs' but are no substitute for professional health advice and should not be used exclusively for self-diagnosis or for self treatment of serious complaints or diseases.  If you have symptoms that persist you should see your doctor.

Each Body language sign included some links to other sites. These links have been added to help you to search the internet, and some may be commercial sites. The authors have no commercial links with any organisation referenced here and do not accept responsibility for the validity of any claims made or information contained in this site or any other links, nor can they be held responsible for any actions arising from information or advice given.

As a result of discussions on the bulletin board for supplements we have negotiated with a leading supplement supplier to give favourable terms on products that are targeted towards some of the Body Language signs and symptoms.
